    These are both personal sheaths. It appears I had a few knives floating about to make sheaths for. You know what they say about the barber's kids...

    I have yet to do any leather work but your stitches are even and straight and your edges are very nicely burnished. Clean and simple looks great!

    I really like both of them. They remind me of something a friend once said when I asked him why he preferred building Shaker furniture over other styles. He said that the simplicity of the designs challenged him to do his absolute best work because any mistakes would be very obvious. The superb workmanship really shows up in these pieces.

    It has always been my dream to have an authentic Ray Mears / Alan Wood Woodlore, with sheath and dangler. But as there is a 10 year waiting list and they are ridiculously priced - that was not going to happen.

    Cody at Adventure Sworn made me an awesome knife - and I did the best I could to make the sheath authentic. It was fun - and I am REALLY happy to be able to carry the knife on my hip now.

    Outstanding work TF!! As my many mentors have stated over and over again, "Through simplicity, comes complexity" This I have heard over and over again, the simpler a design, the easier it is to see the flaws. You did good my friend. :)

    It is tough man - I have gotten a lot better over the last year or so - but all I see are the flaws. The second sheath has a thumb nail mark in it, for instance, so when I see the pictures - that is all I see.

    It isn't a matter of poor self esteem or anything - it is like a artist that is never happy with their work.
